The Sunnyside Arch is Finally Refurbished

April 28, 2009 Staff Report

Sunnyside’s local politicans and business leaders came together last week to celebrate the refurbished arch, which is one of the neighborhood’s best known landmarks.

Sunnyside Councilman Eric Gioia and Queens Borough President Helen Marshall held a press conference and discussed the historic importance of the arch and the $500,000 that was needed to repair it.

“For more than a quarter century, this arch has served as a symbol of Sunnyside and become probably the best known location in the entire community,” Marshall said. “I am happy to have provided support for its restoration and for the beautification of the surrounding area.”

The $500,000 project was funded with $300,000 from Marshall’s office, $150,000 from Gioia’s office and $50,000 from Assemblymember Catherine Nolan.
